Where'd you race today?

A few of the local RS owners contacted me and they wanted to go drag racing at State Capitol Raceway on Sunday, 10/29/17, during a regular test-&-tune. Great weather! :)

We arrived at State Capitol Raceway around 10:15am. Density Altitude was around -500 ft. It took a while to get through tech with the amount of street cars racing today. At 11:21am I got my first pass, and my second pass at 12:18pm. The (2) timeslips are described below and can be found in the attached image. NOTE: THE TIMESLIPS REFLECT THE WRONG DATE, 10/30/17.

Notes for first pass (12.826@109.54mph):

My fourth pass in my RS down the dragstrip. Pretty good front wheelspin on the launch because of the cold weather.

2. Launch control ON at 4000rpm. ESC + Traction Control OFF. Sport Mode. Dampers Normal.
